Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only collect and use information about you lawfully and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

Personal Information Collection:
We collect only your name, e-mail address, submitted stories and profile data. We care about the information we collect and it is used for helping you with the best possible services. We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purpose of our website, which is to enable users to discover and share information with one another. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and efficient experience. We do not process this information in a way that is incompatible with this objective. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features.

Prepare yourself:
There are some things you need to think about before you even place an ad, whether it’s free or not. You need to have a registered business name and a business license so that your business is a legitimate entity. If a potential customer or client wants to verify your business, they should be able to find it registered under the city, county or state where your business is located. You also need to have a catch phrase or a simple description of your business that you include as part of the ads you place. This will allow potential customers or clients who see your ad to know exactly what your business has to offer. If it’s descriptive, you might even use a copy of your business card as the ad itself.

Protection of Personal Information:
Your account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. Protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by logging off once you have finished using a shared computer. As stated previously, you can always opt not to disclose information, but then you may be unable to use certain features on our website, such as posting new links. By visiting your User Profile, you can correct, amend, add or delete personal information on our website. When you update information, however, we often maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records. You may request deletion of your account by visiting contact us page and sending email with detailed information. Please note that you will continue to receive all system e-mails (e.g. those regarding forgotten user passwords) and legal notices (e.g. updates to our policies) from us.

We do not sell or pass any user’s personal information, e-mail addresses included, to any other organization for any purpose. The information is held under high security and would not be shared for any reasons whatsoever. Information will not be kept for longer than is necessary. The information we hold will be accurate and wherever necessary, kept up to date. You can check the information we hold about you, by contacting us via e-mail. We will immediately correct any errors you find. Data held about you will be done so under extreme.

Include the Right Information:
Along with a clever tag line or descriptive phrase, you should also include in your free classified ad your contact information. This doesn’t just mean the typical phone number and PO Box; it means to include a link back to your own website whenever you possibly can. The more potential clients or customers you can get to peruse your business website, the better for your business. Internet advertising is a smart way to boost business if you are smart about how you use it. It doesn’t take much effort to create new business and increase your income.

Know when to use Internet Advertising:
There are tons of places you can try, for free marketing on the web. And, it’s always a great idea to place general business ads just to get your business name out there. However, to fully use classified ads to your business advantage, there are certain times to use certain ads. For instance, people that have mortgage and rent payments usually have to make those payments at the beginning of the month. Therefore, its smart business to create a free Internet ad with a discount or a coupon attached to it during the first week of the month. People love a bargain, particularly during lean times.
